  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • ground nutmeg to taste
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • few cubes of feta cheese
  • fresh basil
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil for baking


  1. Cut the potatoes lengthwise a few time, not too deep. Or poke it a few times with the fork, so that it won’t explode in the oven.
  2. Place it on a parchment, sprinkle olive oil and bake at 220 C for 45-50 min. I prepared this recipe together with my baked cauliflower recipe, which needs the same baking time.
  3. Take out from the oven and make sure they are done in the middle, by poking it with a fork.
  4. Cut in half and add the butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  5. Place the feta cheese in the middle and the freshly cut basil.
